Brett Mccormick in for Injured Aaron Yates

Jordan Superbike Video

Michael Jordan Motorsports (MJM) announced today that 18-year-old Canadian Superbike rider Brett McCormick will fill in for injured Jordan Suzuki rider Aaron Yates during his recovery. Yates underwent surgery on March 28th after breaking his leg in that morning’s practice prior to race four of the 2010 AMA Pro National Guard American Superbike Championship held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA.

Yates is expected to be out of action for a period of six to twelve weeks.

McCormick, from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, was the 2009 runner-up in the Canadian Superbike Championship. He raced the first two AMA Superbike events of 2010 for Celtic Racing, scoring a seventh and an eighth place finish in the first four races. McCormick currently sits tenth in points in the 2010 championship.

The team evaluated McCormick during last week’s test at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA. Both Celtic Racing and McCormick have close ties with Michael Jordan Motorsports and that, combined with his recent experience on the Suzuki GSX-R1000, made him a good candidate to fill in for the injured Yates. Celtic Racing team owner Barry Gilsenan is very supportive of the decision and is glad to see Brett get the opportunity.

The 2010 Michael Jordan Motorsports team’s next event is the Superbike Showdown at Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA on April 16-18, 2010.
